Whipped up with Christmas stews of puff pastry, Dutch people like to drink a plate of soup empty during the Christmas dinner. Usually soup is still used as a starter. This is because the Christmas dinner consists of three courses. In addition to the classic tomato soup, more modern variations such as mushrooms, spinach and pumpkin soup are served in the kitchen area.

Starting from a stew of hare, the bolts are favorite. Here are usually silver sprouts, gingerbread, cloves, laurel and juniper berries added. Of course, red wine, in the stew and as a guide at dinner, can not be missed! The latter also applies to mashed potatoes, stewed pears and red cabbage. Honey pepper prepared and served in this manner may count towards the Christmas class.

‘Beef Wellington’ is a treat for every meat lover! Many top chefs have their own twist and name given.Traditionally, this typical English dish is made of oxen, goose liver pie and duxelle (finely chopped mushrooms with herbs) wrapped in puff pastry. Although the puff pastry was initially purely functional – it allows the taste of the duxelle to pull into the meat and that the moisture does not leak out of the package – especially children think this is the best part of the dish.

The name of the dish comes from Arthur Wellesley, the first duke of Wellington. He entered the history books as a statesman who defeated Napoleon during the battle at Waterloo in 1815. He also printed his stamp in the capital of New Zealand and even in the English term for rubber boots.

4. Christmas ham – main course

Where the Sweden talk about ‘Julkinka’, the Finns of course mean ‘Joulukinkku’. In the Netherlands, we simply call this piece of Christmas Christmas. In the Scandinavian countries Christmas is just a Christmas party party as a catcher on the table. Traditionally, the ham is cooked with small baked potatoes and charcoal.

It’s nice to know that Sweden is definitely cooking their Christmas hammer in plenty of water, including added laurel, pepper and pimento grains, juniper berries and cloves. The flavored ham then goes into the oven. Do you know how to make the Christmas hammer extra shiny? Add to the mixture, with which the ham is melted before entering the oven, a loose protein.

It is a 12-piece piano piece. Each part represents a dessert.

The sauce pie is often decorated with threads of caramel, chocolate and sugared almonds. If you hang beautiful Christmas ribbons around it and decorate the cake with silver sugar straws, make an edible Christmas tree. By the way, you can also make the filling savory, think of sauces filled with pate or fish.Then you can serve this Christmas classic as an appetizer.

Just like the chicken – distant family – the turkey belongs to the chicken-like. Perhaps the turkey has ever hit the European menu card. At the European discovery of America in the 16th century, the beast was seen as peril. This tasteful bird still knew Europeans from the East. By the way, the Americans eat turkey traditionally on Thanksgiving day.

As a filling for the Thanksgiving turkey, which also tastes delicious during Christmas, mushrooms, onions, garlic, bread, butter and herbs are used. Also egg, whipped cream, parsley and celery are on the ingredients list. Fun on turkey on the menu is that you do not mind looking at it during the evening.The oval time can be used to bubble!

1. Gourmets – starter and main course

Gourmetten - TOP 10 MOST POPULAR DUTCH CHRISTMAS MENU DISHES

Very popular among the little chefs is gourmets. It comes down that everyone at the table bakes his own diet in a saucepan or on the grill plate. You can compare it with stone grills and raclets. A difference with the latter activity is that this has a key role for cheese. At gourmets, the tablemates bake especially meat, fish and vegetables. Pancakes and omelets are also well prepared in a small saucepan.All this is supplemented with salad, different sauces and of course baked bread with herb butter.

Probably gourmets have been swept from Asia. Anyway, Dutch people love it. There is something for everyone on the table and the hostess can just sit down. Just the smell afterwards, you refrain from making a monthly habit.
